I lived in Manhattan when Dinkins was the city's mayor. Any present-day New Yorker who remembers what that was like should have every reason to dread a return to Democrat control of Gracie Mansion. And by "that", I mean: rampant crime, drugs sold openly in city parks, garbage-strewn streets and alleys, ubiquitous beggars and bums, subways with no heat in the winter and no air conditioning in the summer, all stinking and crawling with vermin. I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

Smart people jumped that sinking ship long ago.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

For those who don't know, and the article doesn't mention, DiBlasio was a top aide in the Dinkins administration, and had a front row seat to Crown Heights riot but downplayed his role:

DiBlasio was being discussed on Pittsburgh radio host Jim Quinn's show this morning, and it's pretty scary. He's a classic Alinskyite and Manchurian candidate, it seems.
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.
